Many people who try to switch to coding as a career don't make it. And you want to know the number 1 reason employers tell me? Its because they don't understand the basics.
You can become a coder. While it may seem like a totally foreign language, once you understand some of the underlying principles its actually quite easy - and fun!
Ruby is a fantastically powerful language used by startups and top companies like Airbnb and Twitter. And Unlike languages like Java, C# or Swift, it is relatively easy to learn. But let me tell you: as someone who has worked for years as a professional programmer and hired dozens of coders myself, understanding the basics is critical.
My Newbie to Ruby course if the first part of a series on becoming a professional programmer. It lays the foundations for web development using Ruby on Rails and will set you on a life changing career path. If you try to do Rails without knowing Ruby you will most likely fail.
Understanding Through Exercises & Drills
The course follows a simple pattern. I introduce a concept, give you an exercise and then go through the exercise in detail so that you can solidify your understanding. I also have dozens of additional drills with solutions to help you hone your skills.
Complete in 2 weeks
The course is broken up into 12 sections and you should be able to get through 1 section per evening if you're doing this part time. So all up you'll need about 2 weeks.
The Course will Cover
- Predicates and Conditionals
- Input and Output
- Objects and Classes
- Arrays, Hashes and other Data Structures
- Math and much more
Get your coding career off to a flying start with my Newbie to Ruby course.
There has never been a better time to switch your career!

In my career I've been on several tech startup journeys. I've enjoyed the highs and endured the epic lows of being an entrepreneur. And having learned to code from an early age I now have over 20 years of coding experience.
The world needs more coders and the way in which many companies work with coders needs to change. I'm dedicating my career to these pursuits though my company Codehire and its sister site CODR TV.
Codehire's mantra is Inspire, Teach, Hire and focusses on bridging the gap between learning and early stage coders and those who have chosen to code as a career.
